show. >>> from the fiscal cliff to gun control nra executive vice president was on "meet the press" this morning and here is part of what he said. >> i don't understand why you can't just for a minute imagine that when that horrible monster tried to shoot his way into sandy hook school that if a good guy with a gun would have been there he might have been able to stop it. >> nbc news editor is with me in the studio. there were armed guards at columbine. >> we know the nra is going to dig in. nothing is going to change until the other side can show that it can win these kinds of arguments. we saw this with environmental regulations in the 70s. you saw this in the 90s with the assault weapons ban. i think a lot of democrats got spooked after the mid 90s because so many of them lost their seats. the nra has the power where they can say to their members go to that person's town hall, make sure that they are hit with the questions that we want them hit with. until there is a movement the other direction you are not going to see very much change. >> do you think that the nra has as much
. >> and have an armed guard, n.r.a. told last week that that could work? >> i'm not going to pre-judge the recommendations given to me, i'm skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools. >> a big no to the n.r.a. >> for good reason, they're over-the-hill, they're a big paper tiger and when wayne lapierre got up there and embarrassed himself with the ridiculous comments he made, people want gun control lel' get it and pass by a big margin. >> i don't think he embarrassed himself. >> hold on, bob, saying that children deserve better and we should protect them in the schools and we spend a lot of money here and other jobs, et cetera. why aren't children important enough to put even one armed guard. >> they want to put guns in to to put guns in. >> and even barbara boxer suggested guards and the president should have said i leave it up to the states and localities to figure out what's best for them. >> isn't it true this america wants something that will work, demonstrably work, is that not the case. >> i think that's the case and also what you see is washington, inc
was, one, that the nra's arguments on self-defense, the need for more gun prosecutions are not credible. and second, that he can't do this on his own. if we're going to have serious change on gun policy, we need to have a national movement akin to the national movement to change public opinion on the iraq war. congress should bring the victims of newtown up to capitol hill who would be willing to call for serious changes in gun policy. i think shows like this show have to focus on the fact we have a new toub that occurs in this country every single day. 30 americans on average are killed every day from handgun violence. i think we need massive protests against irresponsible retailers like walmart who sell assault weapons and make them available to anyone -- pretty much anybody that asks. the question is not whether or not we'll have change. the question is whether or not progressives, independents and fair-minded republicans will form a national based movement that will really expose the need for this. one place we might start is asking congress if they believe in the s
trainer you just saw, and a special education teacher who took that class. >>> the nra is saying schools should decide for themselves how to protect their children. here's what nra president david keen told carol costello yesterday. >> when wayne la pierre spoke about a week ago, he suggested that what has to happen and what should happen in every school district administrators, teachers, parents, should sit down and ask what is needed to protect the children in that school. some of them will want police officers there. others will want private security guards. there may be some places where they want volunteers to do it. we're willing to work with everybody on those questions. >> it's a much softer stance than just one week ago. here's what the nra's executive vp said back then. >> i call on congress today to act immediately to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every single school in this nation. >> at the time, wayne lapierre said armed officers were the only way to prevent another massacre like the one that happened in newtown. >>> president obama summo

in the house have strong nra backing, strong gun districts. i think "the washington post" did a great job. >> the paper you work for. >> excellent. looking back at the history of gun control, that it's not just as simple as people think, to be like, well, everybody thinks it must be one way. well, it's just not the case. >> nothing is that simple, particularly the split on urban and rural on this is fascinating. domenico montanaro, thank you for joining me. while the senators go back and forth, lawmakers in the house are quiet about what comes next. but any deal that comes from harry reid and mitch mcconnell in the senate will ultimately have to make it through the republican-controlled house. now joining me is someone who knows that reality all too well, maryland democratic congressman chris van hollen, the ranking member on the house budget committee. congressman, thank you for taking the time. >> chris, great to be with you. >> absolutely. i want to talk to you first about sort of the mood. kelly o'donnell mentioned that this is a conversation happening between a very small number of p
a legislative vote. for now it looks like the nra and wayne lapierre have not been invited by vice president biden to talk about ways to reduce gun violence. according to the nra's president david keene there's been no contact from the white house to include them in this process. piers morgan has penned an op-ed for those who want to see him deported for his views on gun control saying although i love the country as a second home and one that has treated me incredibly well, i would as a concerned parent first seriously consider deporting myself. and actor charlie sheen is at it again, but this time he has company. on saturday sheen sent out this tweet to the mayor of l.a. who knows how to party. tweeted a picture of sheen and the mayor of l.a. at a rooftop bar in mexico and it was only a matter of time.

are going to continue to the enablers of violence, namely the nra, which simply represents the gun manufacturers, which are really the merchants of death, to use a phrase from an earlier era. >> congressman jerry nadler of new york, thank you so much for being on the program. we appreciate it. >> thank you. >>> now to what congress will do the rest of this week, including the cliff negotiations. i'm joined by jonathan weissman of the new york times, great reporter, my colleague on the hill, thank you so much for being here. back to the cliff and guns on nadler, sherman was here saying there is some talk amongst leadership, but i keep beating this like a drum, doesn't seem to be any urgency on capitol hill. >> i was talking to some senators this morning, when are you going to get back into town? oh, you know, maybe tomorrow night we'll kind of come in. president obama will be coming in tomorrow night. doesn't seem the level of urgency that you would think, given that in five, six days these things are going to hit. and i think it's because they really -- i think there's a sense now
it will happen. david: we will see. if the nra is smart, they will focus on the one particular issue, this is not about having a rifle to kill deers, this is not a deal for hunters. this is a deal for 2nd amendment, for individuals to be able to defend themselves from oppressive government. that's what the 2nd amendment was all about. you may not like it. you may want to change the constitution, mr. president, but go ahead and call for it, this is not about hunters' rights. it is about individual's rights. stuart: david thank you. i'm going to say it, this is an opinion, california is hopeless. a landslide victory for president obama in november. voters approved higher taxes for themselves, or at least the rich in their state. a statewide carbon tax. coming up next, what's ahead in california in 2013? power consum, impact wool exports from new zealand, textile production in spain, and the use of medical technology in the u.s.? at t. rowe price, we understand the connections of a complex, global economy. it's just one reason over 75% of our mutual funds beat their 10-year lipperverage
